8:04 am
last night, demonstrators were dragged out of a donald trump speech in new orleans last night. trump was trying to rally voters ahead of today's republican presidential primary in louisiana. >> trump is the party's front-runner by a wide margin. but other republicans are working to keep him from winning the party's nomination. major garrett is in our washington bureau with that. major, good morning. >> good morning. another state to watch today is kansas. famous for moderate republicans. dwight w. eisenhower and bob dole and kansas is the battleground over the soul and the republican party. cruz and rubio made play for the state and its 40 delegates. >> we had john mccain, he lost. we had mitt romney, he lost. you said you know what? i back this one and back that one. next time, i said i'm just going to do it myself! >> reporter: donald trump today sought to take control of the republican party the day after clashing with his rivals at the
8:05 am
11th gop debate. >> this little guy has lied so much. >> here we go. >> about my record. >> here we go! >> he has lied so much! >> reporter: the rift between trump and the republican establishment continues to grow. trump cancelled his scheduled saturday appearance before an annual conference of conservative activists, drawing ridicule from ted cruz. >> he was told there were conservatives that were going to be here! >> reporter: those conservatives were skeptical of trump. >> if he doesn't show up he is dodging what goes on here. >> he doesn't represent our values at all. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. >> reporter: as mitt romney and other gop leaders plot ways to deny trump the nomination, republican national committee chairman reince priebus said the turmoil would not hurt the party's chances in the fall. >> mr. chairman, is your party coming apart at the seams? >> not at all. i think what you see is drama and intrigue and i think good for our party. >> reporter: what are the probabilities of an open or contested convention? >> you know, i don't know about that. i still believe that it's likely
8:06 am
that we wouldn't go to a contest convention but, you know, whatever the case is, we are going to be prepared. >> please! i know it's hard not to interrupt. >> it's not what you said. >> breathe, breathe. >> lyin' ted. >> reporter: despite the rancor at last night's debate, all the candidates pledged to support the eventual republican nominee. >> that's how bad hillary clinton is the fact we keep getting asked will you vote for the front-runner as a republican tells you what a flawed candidacy it is. >> reporter: retired neurosurgeon ben carson announced the end of his candidatesy yesterday. saying in an interview, that the reason for he dropping out is because of poor staffing and lack of press conference. >> major garrett in washington, thanks. on the democratic side, contests are being held today in kansas, louisiana and nebraska. both hillary clinton and bernie sanders are focusing on michigan's primary on tuesday, which has more delegates than the three states voting today combined.
8:07 am
>> there were so many insults flying back and forth. it was hard to keep track. >> reporter: in detroit, the republican debate drew a brief mention from clinton but she quickly turned to michigan's economy, taking a tough line on trade in a state hard-hit by outsourcing. >> and we don't take action until after the damage is done. which often means after workers are laid off. that is ridiculous. >> reporter: in traverse city, sanders argued he not clinton has consistently opposed free-trade deals. >> nafta and trade deals with china have cost this country decent paying jobs. >> reporter: the delegates both visited water-stricken flint, clinton more than once, they want to show they are equipped to solve crises like that one when they arise. or "cbs this morning: saturday," i'm nancy cordes in washington.
8:08 am
buoy. >> good morning. >> reporter: periwe heard from y and major. everyone looks like they are taking swings at donald trump. the gloves are off. how does it help him? >> i think in this stage you have the entire republican establishment going at him, it helps him. the argument is at the establishment not listen to the ordinary voters i will protect you and fight for you and do deals for you. and the establishment going at him like this this hard this late in the process is a sign to his supporters that, oh, trump must be doing something right here. he must be -- everyone take him down right now. he must be on the right target. >> we heard in major's story that the republican party chairman reince priebus saying the party is not coming apart. this is drama and intrigue. is he right? >> when i hear that it seems like chairman priebus is in a fire and telling everybody everything is okay. i don't think it's that at all.
8:09 am
a brokered convention, the fact they are openly discussing can we coop or get rid of trump at the convention is a sign this party is cracking apart under strains developing a long time. >> a close primary and caucus states only registered republicans can vote. how does that affect them? >> i think it gives a boost to the other candidates. trump does well with registered republicans. he has won them in most of the contests he has won, but a lot of his support in open primaries has come from people joining in or jumping in to vote for trump. i think rubio and cruz and kasich may do better and have a chance to block him in some places because it's a close primary i wouldn't count on the fact it's registered republicans to save them. eventually they have to convince trump voters to vote for other candidates. >> we saw the support for the gop nominee, even if it is trump. does that undermine the attacks ai
8:10 am
>> i think it completely does because it makes this just ordinary primary politics. the argument from romney, even from rubio and from cruz is this is extraordinary, that donald trump is a threat not just to the republican party but to everyone. then to say after i that support him in general and undermines it and says to voters don't take this too seriously. they don't need to endorse democrats but i think they should be willing to say we are willing to lose if that is what it takes to beat donald trump. i think that sends the serious message that the voters need to hear. >> what is your assessment what is happening on the democratic side right now? hillary clinton has won seven states. is it a momentum issue? is there anything ahead of for her that you're weary of? >> the next couple of states and march 8th and 15th primaries is states good for sanders and he should be able to capitalize on but hillary clinton is doing so well with the african-american and latino voters very much suggest her path to the nomination is secure because they make up an important part of the voting population and
8:11 am
michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, california, new york, so on, so forth. unless sanders can crack into that trunk hold that hillary clinton has he doesn't have a path to the nomination even as he will continue to do well in states going forward. >> always interesting. thank you very much. >> thank you. los angeles police are conducting dna tests on a knife reportedly found buried on simpson's properties years ago. simpson was accused in the murders of his ex-wife nicole brown simpson and her friend ron goldman. but police never found the knife that prosecutors claim he used to kill them. simpson was acquitted in a lengthy public trial. as carter evans reports, while police are taking the investigation seriously, they caution it could turn out to be another false lead. i was really
8:12 am
>> reporter: the los angeles police department was stunned when a retired police officer recently turned in a knife that was allegedly found nearly two decades ago by a construction worker during the demolition of o.j. simpson's estate. >> the off-duty or retired officer was working in the area of the rockingham estate and he claimed that an individual who worker provided him with this knife, claiming that it was found on the property. so he held onto it. >> reporter: that former officer has not been publicly identified but he is believed to have the knife many years before turning it in about a month ago. retired lapd detective tom languagee was the detective on the case and said sompsimpson's property was thoroughly overlooked. >> the time that simpson had this knife, i would be very surprised if we would missed something like this. >> reporter: the knife that could have tied simpson to the
8:13 am
during his trial, simpson famously tried on a bloody glove discovered at his office and that evidence was dismissed by his attorney johnnie cochran. >> if it doesn't fit, you must acquit. >> marcia clark was the prosecutor in the case. clark spoke to "entertainment tonight." >> if it does turn out to be connected to the murders of ron and nicole, it would be interesting if there was some poidence on that knife that d inteto who might have helped to bury it. if, indeed, someone else did. >> do you know what is going on here? o.j. is in the back seat with a gun to his head! >> it comes as a cable miniseries and it has renewed interest in the case. >> we don't a situation here and we don't want anybody to get hurt! >> you have to question the timing at the miniseries on the o.j. case and all of a sudden they come up with this knife? it's going to raise some
8:14 am
say this new knife development could turn out to be, in their words, bogus. >> mr. simpson, would you please stand and face the jury? >> reporter: even if it's not, according to carl douglas who was part of simpson's defense team, it will be of little significance to his former clients. >> not guilty of the crime of murder. >> the case is over involving o.j. simpson. he can never be prosecuted for those crimes again. so what i would say for anyone who is grasping for straws is, please, to move on with their life. >> for "cbs this morning: saturday," carter evans, los angeles. heavy rain is falling across northern california this morning. it's part of a powerful storm system that will affect much of the nation in the week ahead. river flooding is possible. southern new hampshire snow caused a 40-car pileup on an

8:16 am
>> how has the load of homes you have to visit increased? >> it's gone up huge. numbers of families that we are seeing has exponentialally grown. >> reporter: when you were first told your daughter had high levels of blood, what went through your mind? >> i was very afraid because of how young she is and i didn't know the dangers of it. >> reporter: five months after flint switched its water supply back to the lake huron, a thousand homes have dangerous levels of lead in the water and 72 children are still testing positive for high lead levels in their blood. but only half of flint's 8,000 children under 6 has been screened. because testing is voluntary. since lead can remain in the body for decades the state is developing a registry to track flint residents for years. but stephanie says until all of the lead lines are out she will be afraid how the water is affecting her daughter's re

8:40 am
the recent research you mentioned suggested more than half of people have some symptoms in the days or weeks before they have a cardiac arrest and almost 90% have symptoms within the first 24 hours before they have the arrest. but most significantly, the vast more than, 80% don't act on the symptoms and don't call 911. that might be in part because they don't recognize them. some of the symptoms we associate with heart problems, like chest pain or shortness of breath. others are more subtle and might not necessarily they think relate to our hearts like nausea, vomiting, abdominal or back pain. flu-like symptoms or passing out. >> fatigue also. >> yeah. that's another one. >> what is the difference? i think most people don't know the difference between cardiac arrests and a heart attack. >> i think that is the biggest misconception. a heart attack is there are tiny blood vessels that supply the heart muscle to muscle with blood. when one of those gets blocked or narrowed,
8:41 am
that heart, that muscle that is supplied by that blood vessel, can die. it can get too little blood flow and just die. that is just a part of the whole heart. so the whole heart can still beat even though part of it is limping along because part of the heart muscle has died. that is different than in a cardiac arrest. in a cardiac arrest, you have too little blood flow often or other causes that causes the heart instead of beating like this regularly and pumping out blood to beat like a bag of worms like this. it's called ventricular fibu fibrillati fibrillation. the blood is not coming out in a way and you get no blood flood to the carotid arteries to the brain and you go down. in that case every minute of getting shock because a shock can save your life for every minute delay your survival goes down 10%. ten mis,

>> you diagnose this is happening to someone and you're in the room, what should you do in the first seconds. >> what jon said was absolutely right. the survival rate is dismal, less than 10% of people survive. it's also a really difficult illness. it's a difficult condition because it strikes in the prime of life, right? right around the age of 65. but what is interesting about cardiac arrest is that it's reversible for many, many people if you act on it right away, within the first few minutes. so the very first step, no matter what is to call 911. get ems on their way over. then grab a defibrillator called an aed if you're in a place that has one and use it. cpr should be started right away and continue the cpr until ems arrives. no matter what the patient looks like or whether or not you think it's working, continue it straight through. in an ideal setting two people. one person call 911 and
